The state Senate of Texas yesterday gave approval to a state budget which includes excluding Windows Vista from being installed on the computers of government agencies without the consent of legislature.
Senator Juan Hinojosa proposed the exclusion because “of the many reports of problems with Vista.”
“We are not in any way, shape or form trying to pick on Microsoft, but the problems with this particular [operating] system are known nationwide,” stated Hinojosa. Hinojosa is a Democrat from McAllen, Texas and he is the Vice Chairman of the Finance Committee. “And the XP operating system is working very well.”
